Thread Name: BS: Commemorating 11 September
Subject: RE: BS: Commemorating 11 September
One might mention that Richard Nixon, who was president of the United States on September 11 1973, was a disgraced ex president on September 11, 1974.
One might also mention that the young men who crashed those planes were the sons of middle class and even wealthy Arab families, not Chileans.
Last year, the East Liberty Presbyterian Church commemorated September 11 with a memorial service including a woman cantor, from one of the local temples, and a Muslim immam. It was very moving. I understsand Bush wants to call 9/11 Patriot's Day. I hope to gracious it doesn't catch on!
When mother and I were in England, I found myself standing on the place where Oliver Cromwell was interred in Westminster Abbey. I did a couple of jig steps.
